WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- Dog owners all over the country are being warned to watch out for what kind of treats they're giving their animals. The FDA has received thousands of reports lately about jerky beef treats that have been making their pets sick. Doctor Kristopher Sharpe, an internal medicine specialist , says that you might want to avoid jerky treats altogether for a while, as it's not known exactly what brand is affected. All that's clear is that it's jerky treats made in China. Doctor Sharpe says that the symptoms that dogs have been showing vary from vomiting to excessive urination. The FDA is working to track down exactly which treats are affected. If your dogs gets sick from one of the products take it to the vet right away, and notify the FDA.
